tap @ boulevard grill in johnstown,pa .. . pours a light yellow orange .. low head, light lacing .. . surprisingly flat mouthfeel .. . mild lemon and hay .. . a rare miss from east end .. . . so, I’m trying to do something unnatural, and they don’t really understand it, but they’re very upset about it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Capones. Pours a very cloudy straw yellow color. Barely any head or lacing to note. Aromas of clove, german malt, orange peel, fruity esters, and bannana. Taste is a light yeast, wheat bread, dry fruits with mostly bannana coming through, some other german spice. Smooth refreshing palate with a dry finish in the mouth. Very good hefe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft from the brewery. I’m always torn about this one. It’s just not quite what I’m looking for in a hefeweizen, seems to be a tad high in alcohol and tending more towards a weizenbock in my general opinion. It is straight up hefeweizen in pour and appearance, but the cloves, herbs, and again alcohol just come on a bit strong in my opinion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruddy brownish orange. From growler. Big spice, clove, banana, and grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is nutty and grainy. Brings a nice english element to the german hefe. Still retains the clove and dried banana chip. Good
